He became a sought-after session musician, playing trumpet and also bass guitar, flute, horn, keyboards, and saxophone. He was also employed as an arranger and producer, working with Max Romeo, Lorna Bennett, The Skatalites, Pablo Moses, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, and Peter Tosh.
Hunt emigrated to New York in the late 1970s, where he worked with Joe Gibbs and Lloyd Barnes' Wackies set-up. In 1987 he returned to Jamaica, where he enjoyed success as a producer and musician woking with the likes of Beres Hammond, Judy Mowatt, The Abyssinians, and Garnett Silk, and recorded with Jimmy Cliff, Steely & Clevie, and The Rolling Stones.
